It's definitely a given that Baby Yoda is such an adorable character that pretty much has stolen the spotlight in The Mandalorian. And although Star Wars fans are already aware of his abilities, it seems like he's far more powerful than they thought.

Taking to Twitter, The Mandalorian star Gina Carano, who plays Cara Dune in the series, revealed that she passed out while filming a scene with Baby Yoda. The scene in question was from the seventh episode of the show wherein Mando and Dune engaged in an arm-wrestling fight. The Child seems to be confused with what was happening so he choked Cara using the Force. Of course, it's definitely unexpected of him, which is why fans were shocked upon seeing that part.

When asked how it felt to be the "first choke victim" of Baby Yoda, Carano revealed that she "legitimately passed out twice" while shooting that scene. "So.. ya.. It was pretty great," she wrote. Carano then made light of the situation by saying that the little one's force choke is actually "no joke."


Carano seems to be doing fine, which is assuring, but her story can get a bit nerve-wracking, especially since fans would still want to see her in more adventures with the Child and Pedro Pascal's Din Djarin.

Carano will return in The Mandalorian Season 2. The show is yet to have an official release date, but the first season is already available to stream on Disney+.
